Fast Thinking and Slow Thinking Visualisation Last week I attended the Association of American Geographers Annual Conference and heard a talk by Robert Groves , Director of the US Census Bureau.

These tend to be much simpler in appearance, such as my map of the distance that London Underground trains travel during rush hour.
